  • LSU Black

    Is this variety prone to splitting? I just found one that is nowhere close to being ripe and it had opened up like a flower. I am just wondering if I made a bad choice in purchasing this variety.

    I don’t know about GA but it’s an excellent fig here and I don’t recall it being a splitter assuming it’s a Scott’s Black.

      IIRC there is a LSU Scotts Black, a LSU Black and a LSU Late Black, all three different figs.

        I believe Late Black is actually Thibodeaux, per Cajun B. There is an LSU Black, but JFE sells LSU Scott’sBlack labeled as LSU Black. So many ppl have ended up thinking their Scott’sBlack is plain Black. Think I’m remembering that right….

        Yeah, I'd be interested in how these three compare.

      I had a lot of fruit from LSU Black last year, and yes it did split a lot. My LSU Black tree was right next to my RLBV tree and it was a stark contrast. RLBV did really well in the rain and bugs and LSU Black did not. Despite that I kept it this year because it did grow well and produce a lot of fruit.

        There is a LSU Scott's Black,it does well in rainy climate in the deep south,The Late Black is the LSU Thibodaux and the LSU Black is just a LSU Purple that some one was tying to sell as a LSU Black,as for as a know there is no LSU Black......I almost forget,there is a LSU St.Gabriel Black also.
